Mika Brzezinski, presenter of the MSNBC network show called Morning Joe has demonstrated that she is a journalist.
On live TV she refused to give the release from prison of Paris Hilton as the top news story. She apologised in the name of the network to the three million viewers: “I have to apologise for our opening news item. I hate this story. I don’t believe it should be our top story.”
She then tried to burn the sheet of paper with the news item. She didn’t manage it and so she put it through the shredder.
Mika became the news item. A free journalist is a world event. It’s like Spartacus who rebelled against the Romans or Braveheart against the English. A million hits in a few hours for the refusal video on YouTube.
Mika should be a guest in Italy to teach journalism. I’ll invite her.
With us the important news item is not what’s important but the news item that’s important for berlusconidalemaprodimontezemolodebenedetticasini. As Frassica
said: What is beautiful is not beautiful, but how beautiful, how beautiful, how beautiful!”
It’s a fruit salad of bent backs, of zealous servants, of well paid deceived people, off half busts without balls, of voluntary slaves.
The actors are in front of our eyes in each news broadcast. I’m talking about a disgusting thing about the death of Federico Aldrovandi. A few days ago, the 4 police officers who stopped him and massacred him were sent for trial. Ten seconds of in-depth news on the TV news. TENSECONDS. In the same programme, minutes and minutes devoted to the broken dreams of Anna Falchi and Ricucci.
Journalists can no longer pretend nothing’s happening. The Internet is spitting at them every day that goes by. Let them take a step forward. They’ll probably lose their salary, but they’ll no longer lose face.

Mika Brzezinski is writing something new in journalism.
In the sorry situation in which world journalism is, she deserves the Pulitzer.

As for all of you below, please write in English and stay on topic.

Volevo dirti una cosa, Beppe (forse sarebbe questa una notizia positiva da dare) il tanto sberleffeggiato Hugo Chavez (dopo aver proibito la vendita di sigarette) ha ridotto la giornata lavorativa da 8 a 6 ore; ovvero meno disoccupazione e più tempo libero ossia maggiore dignità per l'uomo. Lo si critica per la sua tv di stato ma prima di giudicare sarebbe bene sapere cosa è successo in passato; lo scherzetto che gli han preparato le tv private. Suggerisco il documentario "the revolution will not be televised".

Se ti risultasse interessante, ne sarei felice. Auguri per tutti i progetti futuri. Sei un grande e sei anche un pazzo.

Nei telegiornali italiani ormai c’è solo "INFOTAINMENT", cioè notizie-spazzatura tra il gossip e il trash tanto per occupare il tempo e sostituire e/o diluire le notizie veramente importanti, che il popolo bue non deve sapere.
Ormai nei nostri telegiornali si parla solo di:
● Veline;
● Calciatori;
● Fotografi e gossip;
● Feste al Billionaire di Briatore;
● Tempo atmosferico (edizione straordinaria: d’estate fa caldo!);
● Cogne o delitto passionale di turno (con immancabile incipit "È finita in tragedia...");
● Sfilate di moda con le anticipazioni sulle ultime tendenze primavera-estate;
● Incidenti del sabato sera;
● Polemica per qualche reality show o altra porcata televisiva (autoreferenzialità della TV);
● Consigli per la dieta per la “Prova Bikini”;
● Un paio di marchette in coda (di qualche libro o film o automobile);
● Calcio e calcio mercato.
Qui ormai l’informazione fa impallidire i livelli di “telebasura” del sudamerica!!! È ora di dire BASTA!!!
● (E va già bene che è un po’ che non si parla di Pitbull che mordono la ggente... l’estate scorsa erano la notizia di apertura di tutti i TG, magari questa estate ritornano in auge.)

ancora piu' encomiabile per il fatto che il proprietario e datore di lavoro di NBC sia General Electric...che e' molto piu' grande di Mediaset...
